According to the Sun, Chelsea has agreed on personal terms to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan this summer transfer
However, Thomas Tuchel is keen to add more attacking reinforcement to the squad next season
The transfer is set to be a free transfer move as the Croatia international winger deal with Inter Milan is set to expire this summer
It is said the Croatian winger only needs to complete his medical and sign the contract before he will become a Blues player
According to Sports Mediaset in Italy, the deal is all in place between the player and his new club and ready to be completed.
Perisic, 33, becomes a free agent at the end of the season when his Inter Milan contract expires.
He has failed to arrange an extension at the San Siro

The World Cup finalist reportedly wanted a new three-year deal worth just shy of £100,000 per week
But Inter – who may also lose Lautaro Martinez – were only willing to offer a two-year deal at £65,000 per week.
An angered Perisic hit out at club chiefs for failing to sort the new deal earlier
Speaking on Wednesday after scoring twice in extra time to win Inter the Coppa Italia, his 47th club appearance of the season, he said: “I don’t know anything yet.
“With important players, you don’t wait until the last minute. You ought to know that too.”
The former Manchester United target has chipped in with seven league goals and six assists for the title-chasing side.
Chelsea must wait until the takeover is all done before they are able to sign any players – new or existing – down to fresh deals.
Todd Boehly looks on course to become the new owner before the end of May after the paperwork was signed for his consortium’s £4.25billion successful bid.
However, Chelsea has already lost Antonio Rudiger to Real Madrid while trio Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Marcos Alonso are expected to join Barcelona
According to Fabrizio, Perisić has no agreement with any club yet
He’s been appreciated by Tuchel since January, but Chelsea is still waiting to negotiate – nothing done
Inter are still hopeful to reach an agreement with Perisić, but they need to improve their bid – and Ljubičić is not his agent.
